The Midtown Men played three shows this past weekend with The Grand Rapids Symphony, and according to MLive’s Jeff Kaczmarczyk, they had the audience hoping they would ‘work their way back’ soon!

Midtown Men put Frankie Valli and Four Seasons back on stage with Grand Rapids Symphony


The Midtown Men, dapper in navy suits with skinny lapels and ties, dancing the steps that made the Four Tops and Jackson 5 famous, entertained with the enthusiasm of chorus members in their first leading role but with the poise and polish of seasoned veterans.

The four were a fun-loving, mutual admiration society, swapping stories for the audience, and sharing leads in songs by Neil Sedaka and by Gerry Goffin and Carole King with guest conductor Sarah Hicks leading the Grand Rapids Symphony.

… music of the Four Seasons made up the bulk of the show, and songs such as “Working My Way Back to You” likely left the audience hoping the Midtown Men would do so soon.
